With hundreds of locations across the country, Right Dental Group represents a collection of oral-healthcare professionals who deliver a variety of quality dental services. The collective places an emphasis on relationship building—meaning patients can confess their most egregious toffee-apple trespasses while receiving a teeth scrubbing delivered with precision and understanding. Each of the dentists is prescreened for a consistent record of excellence and the ability to efficiently locate a cavity in a toothstack. A skilled doctor and staff will skillfully probe forgotten mouth corners, eradicating tartar and expunging plaque from bacterial lairs. The included x-rays will help uncover any oral problem areas that cannot be seen with the shamelessly naked eye. After treatment, clients will be privy to tips that explain the proper brushing and flossing techniques to ward off gum disease and tooth loss, ensuring tongue-stoppers remain firmly rooted to the rest of the skeletal system.

In a slew of sumptuous scents, the candles at Lemon Grass bestow aromatic ambience upon hands and homes. Each bar boasts actual bits of whatever comprises its essence, such as the dried rose-infused floral Moonlight Kiss or the grain-topped honey oatmeal scrub. Young phalanges may no longer resist bath time when botanical vegan olive-oil soaps enliven laving ($6/3.5 oz. slice), and industrious hygienists may opt for a loofah soaplogg, an all-in-one sweet-smelling slab housing an exfoliating body sponge inside the bar ($6.50). Dimly lit domiciles in search of effulgence may prefer Lemon Grass's candle collection. Like their sink-dwelling counterparts, each torch touts three-dimensional tokens representative of its personal perfume, as in the 4"x3" round fresh-cut grass, a waxy ecosystem sheltering its own lawn of emerald blades and clump-chewing mole colony ($22). The shop also sells a supporting cast of statuesque taper stands, such as the regal 5-inch round Cordova Rust, which is swirled with leaf details ($16.50).
If ever there was a dash of awkwardness in visiting an adult entertainment store, Hustler Hollywood has all but erased it. Theresa Flynt—daughter to Larry Flynt, creator of the Hustler empire—came up with the concept in the late 1990s. She envisioned a place that not only sold adult-themed products, but celebrated them. So in 1998, she established the first location on historic Sunset Blvd. Since then, Hustler Hollywood has expanded across the country, opening both urban and interstate locations that are just as bright, airy, and relaxed as the first. The chain has certainly turned heads throughout the adult entertainment industry, as well as in pop culture. Hustler Hollywood has twice won the Retail Store Chain of the Year from XBIZ, and has even appeared in such popular television series as Entourage and Sex and the City.
